Justin Turner, Dodgers 3rd Baseman and Beardsmith extraordinaire, broke his left wrist last night after getting hit by a pitch in spring training, and little Declan was upset about it. Turner wins by writing back and offering tickets to his first game back (no timetable yet) which will be probably at least a few weeks into the season.
Turner hit 23 home runs and .323 last season for the National League Champion Dodgers and is always a dangerous hitter amidst a dangerous lineup. The Dodgers will likely move Logan Forsythe over to third in the interim and some platoon of Chase Utley and Enrique Hernandez at 2nd base.

The Brewers paid homage to The Sandlot for the movie’s 25th anniversary and it’s wonderful 😂
